Google buys into new Finnish wind energy in renewables search

Google buys into new Finnish wind energy in renewables searchGoogle said it has signed a 10-year deal to buy renewable energy from three new wind farms that are being built in Finland and which will power one of its data centres. Big companies have rushed to secure cheap renewable energy to manage costs and reduce their carbon footprint through so-called corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs), which allow firms such as Google, owned by Alphabet Inc, Facebook and Microsoft to buy directly from the energy generator. Google said on Tuesday that the Finnish deal is the first where it is buying power from European projects that will not receive any government subsidies.

Storm Gordon halts some energy production in U.S. Gulf

Storm Gordon halts some energy production in U.S. GulfThree more oil producers pulled employees out of Tropical Storm Gordon’s path, and companies cut 9 percent of U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil and gas production on Tuesday as the storm churned toward an expected nighttime landfall. The storm, which is expected to strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane with winds of at least 74 miles per hour (119 kph), shifted eastward, reducing its threat to producers on the western side of the Gulf and most Gulf Coast refineries. Companies evacuated 54 offshore platforms and halted 156,907 barrels per day of oil production and 232 million cubic feet per day of natural gas output, according to estimates by the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement.
